Bismarck, ND – In celebration of NDFB Week, March 10-16, 2024, NDFB is excited to announce an art contest open to 4th and 5th-grade students. The contest encourages young minds to visualize themselves as future farmers, fostering creativity and highlighting the importance of agriculture in our communities.
Participants are invited to create portraits of themselves as future farmers, depicting their vision of farming attire, surrounded by the crops or animals they aspire to cultivate in the future.
The art contest will be judged in two categories:
- Creativity and Originality of the Theme
- Quality of Artistic Composition and Overall Design
A winner will be selected in each grade and receive a $50 prize. The winning artworks will also be featured in NDFB’s member newsletter, Focus.
The deadline for submissions is March 8, 2024.
The theme for NDFB Week is “Cultivate Your Future: Nurturing Growth, Sowing Innovation,” inspired by NDFB’s recently introduced Student Membership category. This theme underscores the significance of cultivating a sustainable and innovative future in agriculture.
NDFB Week is a tribute to the agricultural contributions of county Farm Bureaus across the state. Various events, ranging from ag trivia to “Free Meat Monday, ” will be hosted by county Farm Bureaus to celebrate the week.
